United in being ignored

DC UnitedPoor D.C. United. After weeks of seemingly endless coverage of the Nationals’ first day and the opening of the new stadium, they’ve gotten barely any coverage for their opener today.

Yes, their opener is today. In the much-maligned RFK stadium. The most prominent thing I have seen about it is in today’s post in Capital Weather, which had a weather watch block for the opener. What a difference a week makes – unlike the Nationals opening day attendees, United fans will have a temp that doesn’t drop below 55 by game’s end.

    Know what I like best about soccer? The scoring.

    Hopefully we’ll see some attention paid to them if they get that new stadium down in Poplar Point…
